Our staff consists of approximately 108 career members (including both uniformed and civilian employees) and a volunteer battalion that serves the Big Thompson Canyon and the town of Drake. These department members operate under the leadership of a career Fire Chief. The department also receives valuable citizen input from the Fire & Rescue Advisory Commission.

Mark Miller, Fire Chief

Fire Chief Mark Miller started his fire service career with Loveland Fire and Rescue Department in October of 1979. He spent 25 years with the organization, working his way through the ranks to the position of Fire Chief. Chief Miller left Loveland in 2005 as a way of stepping outside his comfort zone to challenge himself personally as well as professionally, and accepted a position as Fire Chief with Hartford Fire Department in Hartford, Vermont. He spent nearly three years with Hartford and was fortunate to be involved in several unique opportunities including; travel to Macedonia as part of an emergency preparedness exchange mission; elected to serve as the Vermont Director of the New England Association of Fire Chiefs; and was appointed by the Governor to serve on the Vermont Statewide Interoperability group.

Missing his western roots, Chief Miller left Hartford in 2008 to accept a position as Fire Chief with Vail Fire and Emergency Services in Vail, CO. He spent nearly seven years in Vail enjoying the resort lifestyle as well as the challenges of living and working in the wild land urban interface. Chief Miller was afforded the rare opportunity to return to the department where he initially started his career, and accepted the position of Fire Chief with Loveland Fire Rescue Authority (LFRA) on November 10, 2014.
